The following section will show prices for various regions and potential translation costs. The volume of text (word count) always forms the basis of pricing calculations, which is then multiplied with the word price for each requested language combination:

The use of translation memory technology (€2.90 extra per order) makes it possible to ensure consistent terminology and phrasing by saving it per project and using it for subsequent translations.

What is involved in technical translations for the automobile industry?

Translations for the automobile industry require technical understanding, which must be reflected in the specialist vocabulary used. Be it repair manuals, technical documentation, catalogues for vehicle parts, or data sheets – Easytrans24.com ensures that both the content and linguistic aspects of the text are completely accurate.

This combination enables you to address each type of customer in exactly the way intended. The presentation and structure of content can be very different depending on the type of text. For example, data sheets are best presented as clear, easy-to-understand lists and tables without too much flowing text, which makes it even more important that the technical terms are translated well. Operating manuals, on the other hand, need to feature logical and clear instructions on what to do using carefully selected words and phrases, whereas product texts will also need to incorporate emotional factors.

The industry

A detailed look at the automobile industry


Synergy effects and tradition: These are the areas covered by the automobile industry

At its heart, the automobile industry is divided into manufacturers and suppliers. Companies from both sides of the industry work hand-in-hand and make the vehicles we know today possible in the first place. Specialist suppliers work on producing low-cost parts and supply the manufacturers just-in-time for them to transform the individual parts into the end product.

Since so much needs to be transported, there is another commercial arm, which is inextricably linked to the automobile sector: logistics. Service providers, such as workshops and tyre manufacturers, also play a major part.

Good to know: Key facts on the automobile industry

The following key figures for the vehicle industry make the sheer market volume clear to see:

  • Around 76 million cars were registered worldwide in 2014. Around half of these vehicles (48%) were in industrial countries, and the other half (51%) were in recently emerging markets. Developing countries, on the other hand, only accounted for 1%.
  • By 2050, it is estimated that there will be 2.7 billion vehicles on the world’s roads.
  • To keep up with the strong demand, manufacturers are producing around 83 million cars a year worldwide. This corresponds to around 150 cars a minute and 2.6 cars a second.

This trend will only be accelerated by new developments, such as electric cars, networked on-board systems and advanced autopilots.
